First posted 10/143/05: This is very typical and nothing new but I will continue to point it out.
There is not a day that goes by that the mainstream media doesn't run multiple pieces on the "deaths in Iraq". Also huge is the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq.
A Look at U.S. Military Deaths in Iraq
AP - As of Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2005, at least 1,964 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count. At least 1,528 died as a result of hostile action, according to the military's numbers. The figures include five military civilians. Full Story
What you never see is the death toll exacted on innocent civilians at the bloody hands of jihadists. Over at the Religion of Peace they have the running list;The List " of Islamic Terror Attacks Just Since September 11th, 2001
This is the number of attacks since 9/11, not the number dead. What would these leftard journalists prefer, having their thumbsucking asses blown up at their desks while dining on their sushi lunches?
Soldiers die. It is a horror. That's what soldiers do. That's what an army is for. That is the military's job, to defend and protect. Fighting al qaida in Iraq is a brilliant strategy. Taking down major buildings in NYC is an act of war. Khobar act of war. USS Cole act of war. You get my meaning.
Iraqi-based terrorists have been urged by Osama bin Laden's deputy to stop beheading foreign hostages and shoot them instead - not because decapitation is wrong but because it may be counterproductive in the battle for Muslims' "hearts and minds."
Write to the media of your choice and demand they run the daily death toll of human life at the barbaric hands of our enemy, Radical Islamic Jihadists. Oh and make sure you click on the link to the list to see the horrific fashion in which each these innocents were murdered. It is no wonder that the moderate Muslims are afraid to speak out.

Concerns Over Iraq Growing on Homefront

Bob Simpson dips his brush in a jar of black paint and starts scrawling two numbers on a sign he hangs outside his home — totals for U.S. soldiers killed and wounded in Iraq.
Why does this putz Bob make news? Why doesn't Bob have a paint a ginormous sign of the thousands of innocent dead from Radical Islamic homicide attacks? Why doesn't Bob do that? Is it because there is not enough paint in Bob's town or is it because Bob won't make the AP newswire if he does that?
